For a long time, whenever there was a new World of Warcraft guide on the market, we'd all get very excited and run out to see what it had to offer. Then, we started to see that most of the guides were just rewrites of each other. No one was coming up with anything original. So, now when I see a new one hit the market, let's just say I'm a little sceptical. How many ways can you tell people to not stand in the fire or ways to use Auctioneer?
As it turns out, at least one more. The newest and greatest guide to hit the market, courtesy of Alan is called WoW Mad Skills and is already driving a LOT of buzz due to its original, intricate approach to Auction House contro, ball-busting PvP strategies and the most elaborate raid walkthroughs– the kind of things that we've read a hundred times but never seen done this well.
What makes this guide so different than EVERY other guide on the market? To start with, it actually provides tools to help you in your endeavour. Most guides out there tell you what to do with vague descriptions, but Alan has gone out of his way to provide a step by step walkthrough of everything he does to get ahead in the game.
He's taken it another step further and provided templates for spreadsheets, lists, charts and diagrams, the kind of stuff that even the gold gurus tend to hold on to rather than give away to anyone that asks.
So, does WoW Mad Skills deserve to join the ranks of classics like Warcraft Millionaire, the Dugi's and Zygor's and Warcraft Conquest that are actually valuable? In my opinion it does. It's polished, it's accurate, and above all else, it works. If you're looking for the next big guru to show you how to get things done in this game, this is your opportunity.
